Vermont Oxford Rady Children's Genomic Network

About the Vermont Oxford Rady Children’s Genomic Network

This educational network is provided in partnership with Rady Children’s Institute for Genomic Medicine, bringing NICU and PICU teams from centers new to genome sequencing together with teams that have established programs to help shape the future of genomic medicine in newborn care.

Webinar 1: Bridging the Genomics Knowledge Gap

Introduction to Rapid Whole Genome Sequencing (rWGS)

April 10, 2019

This webinar for interdisciplinary clinical genomic, research, and neonatology teams aims to advance knowledge and understanding of how genomic sequencing can help guide medical care for acutely-ill infants and their families.

Webinar 2: The Evolution of Genetic Testing and its Clinical Application

July 10, 2019

We will review genetic testing from chromosomal analysis to genomic sequencing. We will discuss benefits, caveats and turn around times of the different genetic testing modalities. We will delve further into the application of genetic testing in the inpatient setting through a case presentation.

Webinar 3: Genomic Reports

September 11, 2019


Module 1: Genomic Analysis to Clicnical Reports: What a Provider Needs to Know
Module 2: The Power of Genomic Reports: How to Interpret Complex Findings


“As clinical genomic testing becomes more prevalent, the education of providers in the area of genomics is becoming of increasing importance. Providers may not have direct experience in interpreting genomic reports, which can limit the impact and utility of the information provided. This session intends to aid providers in understanding what information is encompassing within a genomic report and how a provider can best navigate the report to help guide downstream clinical management.”

Webinar 4: Implementation Strategies for Introducing rWGS to NICUs

November 20, 2019


This session will provide an overview of strategies for implementation, including assessing the organizational readiness, capacity building, structural features and ongoing support. Available tools for implementation will be highlighted and examples from current implementing sites will be used to illustrate different pathways to implementation. In a recorded interview with one NICU Medical Director, session attendees will hear about the rWGS implementation journey of a typical NICU.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Review with the steps for implementation of new research and technologies into clinical practice
  2. Identify tools and other practical resources for implementation of rWGS
  3. Learn from a case study of a typical NICU what to expect when implementing rWGS
